GO your balcony

1. PLANTS - It is better to buy small or taller plants due to space constraints that don't take much space like bonsai, foliage, cactus and evergreens. Spider plants are also suitable as they are ideal for hanging baskets on the railing or on the wall.

2. POTS - Ceramic planters are various designs which can create a colour theme for your balcony. A saucer can be placed at the bottom of the pots to avoid water spillage.

3. PLANT DECORATION - Taller plants must always be placed at the back, behind the smaller plants so that all plants are visible for view. Decorating the plants according to same colour and size may give a greater impact.

4. WATER - Plants must be watered regularly so that the plants are not wilting. This is because the moisture in plants tend to dry up quickly at a higher level.

5. SUNSHINE - Plants must also be arranged properly so that they will get sufficient sunlight for growth. So, taller plants must be placed behind the smaller plants.

Raw Broccoli, Cabbage Slash Bladder Cancer by 40%, Cooking Destroys Benefits

Eating as little as three small servings of raw cruciferous vegetables per month, such as broccoli and cabbage, has been found to decrease the risk of developing bladder cancer by an astonishing 40 percent. Researchers from the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo had discovered, that only one of several that have recently added to the evidence that raw fruits and vegetables dramatically lower cancer risk.

However, the researchers did not find a protective benefit from eating the same quantity of cooked cruciferous vegetables. This shows that cooking these raw foods will destroy the anti-cancer properties. Smokers and non-smokers who feeds on these raw fruits and vegetables had somehow lower their chances of being at risk of getting bladder cancer by 40 percent, and this founding was only recorded for those who fed on raw foods three times per month. That's a ridiculously small amount of vegetable matter, and yet it had a profound anti-cancer effect.

This founding was presented in a meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Philadelphia.

Khairi, the Malaysian youngest millionaire, wrote on how people manage their money in ways that can actually cause that person to end up with too many credits, especially students.

He/ She gets a new car because the down payment is just a ‘cute’ amount; go shopping for branded and expensive materials that they never dreamed of ever owning it; investments for future finance; and save a little bit for study.

Is that your way of spending your loan money?
